This is truly the easiest appetizer I make. It’s made out of one ingredient. These lacy cheese crisps are so delicious. People never believe me when I tell them they’re homemade. Well here you go:

Lacy Cheese Crisps


1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) packaged sharp cheddar cheese (I use Sargento’s brand)


  1. Adjust oven racks to low and middle positions and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Spoon about 1 Tbsp of cheese onto the sheet and spread into a round single layer. Repeat with remaining cheese keeping cheese disks about one inch apart. (You should get about 12 wafers on a large sheet.)

  3. Bake until crisps stop bubbling, 9 to 10 minutes, switching sheets after 5 minutes if they appear to be cooking unevenly.

  4. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

  5. Stored in a airtight tin, the crisps will keep for 1 month.


These crisps are from one of my favorite cookbooks, Pam Anderson’s Perfect Recipes for Having People Over. I know people say they’re not buying cookbooks any more because all the recipes are on line. I get that but this cookbook is so special because with every recipe, the author has a section on when to serve the item, how to vary it, how far ahead can I make it, and what to do with leftovers. This book is worth it’s weight in gold.


Yup this recipe frequently shows up at my parties. I think you should make this for your next gathering and invite me over to make sure you did it right 😉! Happy entertaining!
